How do I Know if I’m a Good Fit for Laser Hair Removal?

The first thing you should do before investing in a cosmetic procedure such as laser hair removal is to book a consultation with Dr. Sharma. During your consultation, we’ll ask you a series of questions about your medical history and analyze your current hair growth situation to determine whether or not you are a candidate for a laser hair removal procedure. The following are things to consider when determining a patient’s eligibility for a laser hair removal procedure:

  • Patients who have very light skin and very dark hair are ideal candidates for laser hair removal. This is because the laser used is attracted to the pigment that gives hair its color
  • Due to advances in technology, individuals with tanned skin from vacationing in sunny destinations can still benefit from laser hair removal, but it is recommended that they wait until their skin has returned to its more natural skin color before having the procedure.
  • Patients with extremely light colored hair may not be good candidates for the procedure
  • Depending on the skin tone and hair color, multiple treatment sessions over a period of months may be required

How Serious is the Recovery Process After Laser Hair Removal?

For a day or two immediately after the procedure, your skin may feel like it has been sunburned. Using cool compresses and skin moisturizers may help sooth your skin during recovery. If your face was treated, you should be able to wear makeup the next day, unless your skin is blistering.

Laser Hair Removal FAQ's

How does laser hair removal work?
A concentrated laser is aimed at hair, damaging the follicle, thereby inhibiting its growth. Because the results can vary greatly, lasers can inhibit hair growth ranging from several months to multiple years.

Does laser hair removal hurt?
Patients who have had the procedure liken the pain to something between a gentle pinch and the snap of a rubber band.

Is the procedure permanent?
Not necessarily. Laser hair removal is most effective if the hair is caught in the growth stage, which can be difficult to determine since it grows in indeterminate cycles.

Will my skin breakout after the procedure?
It’s common for your skin to breakout after a treatment because the laser treatment leaves the hair follicles open for several days. A simple antibacterial lotion or over the counter hydrocortisone cream can help with these temporary blemishes.

What should I do before and after the procedure?
Discontinue use of any medications like Retin-A, Renova, and/or other AHAs that can make skin fragile and sensitive to laser hair removal. After the procedure has been completed, be sure to avoid saltwater, chlorine, and the sun for about a week to prevent burning and irritation.
